Our take on the Artison LRS-IW

by Tara W.

Get wraparound sound from surround speakers that disappear into your room. These Artison in-wall surround speakers deliver mood-setting ambient effects and exciting action sequences that bring your movies and TV shows to life.

High-quality speaker materials for superior sound
Artison teams up a high-quality Kevlar® midrange driver with two 1" tweeters placed at a 90° angle to each other. This arrangement helps the speaker deliver surround channel effects in a full 180° arc, creating spacious sound that's hard for your ear to pinpoint.

Overview: The Artison LRSIW surround-channel in-wall speakers use high-quality components for high-level performance. Two tweeters are placed at ninety degrees to one another with the rear firing tweeter out of phase with the front tweeter and woofer. This substantially reduces the directional component of the sound, without eliminating the exciting three dimensional effects of being there. The cabinets are finished in white ABS and can be painted to match any décor. Integrated mounting brackets are in included with the system.

Mounting Options


In-Wall Mount Design: Unlike other in wall surrounds, the LRSIW is a complete speaker cabinet mounted inside an In Wall Mount. It does not rely on the cavity created behind the baffle to control the performance of the system. The sound is consistent and fully independent of the environment.

Hybrid Acoustic Design: The Ariston surround-channel speakers feature a unique hybrid acoustic design which is Monopole below 3 KHz where you want "Steering Ability" for action and reality scenes, and Dipole above 3 KHz where you do not want to be able to locate the source of the sound.

Drivers: Each speaker features two 1" Vifa soft-dome tweeters and one 4.5" kevlar midrange cone-woofer.

Cabinet: The Artison LRSIW utilize a bass-reflex cabinet with a front-firing port for added bass-response and efficiency. The speaker cabinets are made of ABS plastic. The cabinets are also paintable.

Metal Grille: The Artison LRSIW speakers feature a off-white removable grille.

Speaker Connections: The Artison LRSIW features a pair of gold-plated spring-post terminals. The speaker wire gauge required is depending upon wire length run; 16 Gauge is suggested as the minimum size.

Mounting Options

Mounting: The Artison LRSIW features an integrated mounting bracket with a 3-3/8" mounting depth and is designed to fit standard 16" OC 2 x 4 stud walls. The in-wall speakers come supplied with a mounting template to help you determine the proper location and size of the cut-out needed in your wall.
